14-E--LUBBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Sunday Morning, April 6, 1975 DEAR ABBY Says Love. Let Love DEAR ABBY ; i am a minister who also docs counseling. A young man recently came to me [or counseling and he showed me a clipping from your column that he hail been carrying lor over two years. He said it saved him from suioido. I am enclosing it. Will you please print it again'.' It might save another life. God love you. T. 13. M. Dear T.B.M.; With pleasure: "Dear Abby: Another advice columnist keeps insisting that homosexuals are 'sick.' She says, 'Thousands of homosexuals have written asking me where they can get straightened out, so they must consider themselves Iwisted, or they wouldn't be asking for help. 'Occasionally f hear from homosexuals who are at peace with themselves, but they are few and far between. I believe the majority of homosexuals would be straight if they were free to choose.' What do you say, Dear Abby? L.A. Times Reader Dear Reader: 1 say that if a heterosexual had been raised to believe that his preference for the opposite sex was •sick,' twisted, abominable, sinful and a disgrace to his family, he would ask for help on how to 'straighten himself out,' too. Homosexuality is a problem because an unenlightened society has made it a problem, but I have received letters by the thousands (and not just 'occasionally') from gay people telling that they wouldn't be straight if they had a choice. All they ask is to be allowed to love in their own way without facing the charge that they are 'sick and twisted.' 1 say, love and let love." + * * DEAR ABBY: Our lovely 18-ycar ; old daughter was accepted at a fine church- Look forward to Thai special accession in this soft emon yellow sheer dress SI 26.00 4515-50th 'Welcome Bonkarr.ericard & Masterchorge MiNSHINI SQUARE affiliated college. She did poorly the first year and was not invited to return. We were very disappointed. We learned later through some friends that one of the ' reasons our daughter had done so poorly in college was because she had become involved in a love affair with a professor, 35 years older than she was! Me is married and has a family. We never dreamed that this college would have a man of such low character on the faculty. My husband is furious. Should we write to the dean and inform him so that other girls can be protected against this lecher? Or shall we speak to his wife about this matter? I doubt if she knows anything about it, Irate Mother Dear Mother: Don't write to the dean, or speak to the professor's wife unless you check out the facts. Start with your daughter. Consider, too, that if the story is true, even though the professor clearly overstepped his bounds, your daughter is far from blameless. * * * DEAR ABBY: When we have a dinner party, my husband has the very bad habit of dragging all the male guests into another part of the house — away from the women guests. I personally feel that this is very rude when we are hosting a dinner party for couples. I also think that most women and men would rather socialize together. Please let me know your feelings on this matter, and send a solution if you have one. Anlihen Parties Dear Anti: Arrange seating for all your guests where you want them after dinner. Then subtly maneuver them there for an after dinner drink, and your problem will be solved. And what's wrong with telling your husband not to drag the men off? * * * Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to Abby: The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, P.O. Box 491, Lubbock Tex., 79408. Enclose stamped, self- addressed envelope, please.
